Shannon here! I’m a traveling writer (or perhaps a writing traveler) and web consultant. In 2008, I left my home in the States to travel solo around the world … hoping to redefine my story of myself and my story of the world. Years later, I’m still on this journey—sometimes with my niece in tow—traveling slowly and sharing stories of life, culture, and vegetarian eats.
The Volunteer Travelers Handbook uses storytelling, research, and practical information to guide travelers to a positive volunteer experience. The book grew from the lessons I learned while traveling, and provides easy-to-understand advice and ethical guidance to help travelers create a positive impact on the communities they visit as they travel.
The A Little Adrift blog is, at it’s heart, a glimpse into the life of a long-term traveler. Me. You’ll find musings about life on the road, tales of travel, photography from around the world, and vegetarian recipes inspired by the flavors of each new place. I share my fears and successes and lend advice for anyone looking for a way to add a little more travel to their life.
